We know that the writing on the gun tells United Defense...... but the partisans caled them in many different way: Marlin (right), Marlen, Mariline, Marilene, Marleen ( perhaps they thought of Lily Marleen.....)..... and many others.
My stupid question is: where found they the name Marlin to call them with the right name of the factory that produced them?
